Postojna Cave entranceThe Postojna Gate (Slovene: Postojnska vrata), also Adriatic Gate and Italo-Illyrian Gate, is a major mountain pass of the Dinaric Alps. Located in Slovenia, the pass's approximately 30-kilometre (19 mi) wide saddle allows for the lowest crossing of the Dinaric Alps, at an elevation of 606 metres (1,988 ft) and a second higher crossing at the Hrušica plateau. It is bordered to the south by the Javornik Hills (Javorniki) and to the north by the Trnovo Forest Plateau (Slovene: Trnovski gozd). The gate connects the Pannonian Plain, the eastern Alps, the western Balkans, and Czech territories with northern Italy and the northeastern Adriatic coast. It is a watershed between the Adriatic and the Danubian drainage basins and takes its name from the local town of Postojna.Show on map

HrušicaHrušica (pronounced [ˈxɾuːʃitsa]; German: Birnbaumer Wald [literally, 'pear tree forest'], Italian: Selva di Piro) is a plateau at the northern end of the Postojna Gate. The plateau can be viewed as the end or extension of the Trnovo Forest Plateau (Slovene: Trnovski gozd), and to the west is Mount Nanos. The limestone plateau reaches an elevation of 1,080 m, while the road crosses it at 883 m. Because the Postojna Gate is crossed at a lower point of 606 m at nearby Postojna, modern traffic including the railroad and the freeway bypass Hrušica. Hrušica was the location of an ancient Roman Fortress called Ad Pirum, which was part of the Claustra Alpium Iuliarum defence system.Show on map
